Choen's Group's story

A villager from the Pursat province’s Sampov Meas district, Choen is 58 years old and married. She has two children, one (son) of whom is dependent on her and helps the family to generate income by working as a laborer in their local area. The main source of her family’s income is from rice and corn farming. To earn additional income, her husband works for others for a fee. Having been a farmer for twenty years, Choen is able to earn a daily income of 15,000 KHR to support her family, and she can save about 5,000 KHR per day for future needs.

This is the first loan for Choen with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She is leading her group of five to apply for a loan. She is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farm land, and to pay wages to farm laborers. She hopes to increase her crop yields and to sell the crops for good prices. Her dream is to one day buy a proper tractor to help her in the rice paddy.
